Once the competition has thinned out, the top tricksters will move on to the freestyle competition, where theyll show off well-practiced routines of their choice. With luck, at least one or two will involve flaming yo-yos always a fan favorite. There should be lots of admirers to cheer the contestants on; Wizards Chest representative Rona Gates expects about a hundred people to show up. I think the popularity of yo-yos goes in phases, she says. Every eight or ten years, it gets a lot more popular. I think its starting to come back.
Sort of like a yo-yo. For more information, call 303-321-4304 or go to www.wizardschest.com.
